Mixing cowpunk with current sounds ,  classic country rock and gothic bewilderment. The sounds of the experts covering Bob Dylan. All the stuff i personally love.

Bernie's playlist, presented by Kirsten. Bernie chose about a third new releases, a third new takes on old sounds and a third just plain strange and wonderful, altogether a great show. Kirsten's highlights - Patti Smith singing a youthful version of "Hey Joe" and a strange a wonderful Lee Hazlewood song. Congratulations Chloe Swarbrick, Auckland Central's new MP, a good result for inner city folk.

Downinto the blues hole for a chat with OG Darren Watson. Talkin' music, having a few laughs and dropping Avantadale Bowling Club & Tupac alongside Lightning Hopkins and Lyle Lovett 'cos hip hop is blues. And folk too.

Starts with some pretty familiar favorites but moves quickly into a ton of brand new to the show tunes, as well as pushing recent discoveries like Sammy Brue & Elijah Ocean. Pretty & brand new Australian Country Music from Ellisa Pernu, awesome Silver Jews, brutal Drive By Truckers and a frankly wayward stagger into the 1970's with The Ozark Mountain Daredevils and new Riders Of The Purple Sage. And a whole heap more.
